    Default Ugly Kid Joe

    Anybody ever heard of these guys? I was listening to yahoo music and they came on with a cover of Cats in the Cradle. Are they any good?

    LOL! Yeah, they're pretty good, if you like your rock with a bit of schtick...

    Seriously, I guess you're a bit young to remember when they were HUGE, for a couple months, anyway. There was a time when you couldn't turn on the radio and/or MTV and hear "Hate Everything About You". Good tune...

    I love those guys!! It's very tongue in cheek rock. Definetly the lighter side of 90's rock.

    Thier drummer is playing with Godsmack now.

    I saw them open for Def Leppard back in........ must have been '93 or '94. Most memorable part of the show? The lead singer gets on one side of the stage, hawks a luggie up across the stage, races across the stage and catches the luggie in his mouth. I thought my wife was going to puke.

    They had a few good tunes. I still have the "Cats in the Cradle" single.
    The only adventures I regret
    are the ones I missed,
    and the thought of all the pretty girls
    I never tried to kiss.

    Because I didn't listen to much rock in the 90's. I quit listening to rock for awhile after my brother died. The irony is a rediscovered rock through Monster Ballads and the old classic rock tapes we recorded years ago. Also, with grunge taking over in the 90's I pushed rock away even further.

    I liked "Everything About You" (a lot) and the song after it on the EP, but the rest I could take or leave. And I never heard anything from the follow-ups (including "Cats In The Cradle") that did much for me.

    I always equated Ugly Kid Joe, along with the Spin Doctors, as industry created bands to hype up the Grunge era so they (the record companies) can make a quick buck.
    Homer: No one snuggles with Max Power. Just strap on and feel the Gs!

    American Coast Guard: Back off Canadians we got them.
    Canadian Coast Guard: You back off hosers, they are in Canadian waters, eh.
    American Coast Guard: Beat it you puck smacking maple suckers!
    Canadian Coast Guard: Take a hike you Shatner stealing Mexico touchers!

    Bart: Who the hell is this?
    Jack Bauer: I’m Jack Bauer, who the hell is this?
    Bart: Me, er… I’m Ahmed Adudi
    Jack: Chloe, get me all you can on Ahmed Adudi… Does anyone there know Ahmed Adudi?
    Chloe O’Brien: Ahmed Adudi; wealthy Saudi financier… Disappeared into Afghanistan in the late 90s…
    Jack: … Really?
    Chloe (ironically): No Jack it’s a joke name, you’re being set up.
    Jack: DAMMIT!

    I thought of Puddle of Mud as a spin-off of Ugly Kid Joe...with UKJ as the better band. I first thought that UKJ was making a comeback when I saw and heard that She Fucking Hates Me song....ohh well.
    Just go for it!
